You're assuming that XEmacs gets past the assertion. I mean that the
assertion crashes XEmacs before we get to the unrecognized byte code
I do see very occasional assertions (various ones), but they always
correspond to unresolved bugs, what I can get from the debugger is
invariably unhelpful, and I've not be able to reproduce. So I've not
done much about them.
However this time we seem to have a specific issue (byte-compiling the
gnus-summary-highlight expression), maybe we can reproduce.
